The short trip up to Shirley Heights is well worth it. The various views that you get are amazing and we now have them on our wall at home. Didn't go to the evening entertainment but it is apparently very good.

View is beautiful but don't get tricked into going on the Sunday afternoon event. It's a tourist trap. They charge you to get in then the BBQ is expensive plus it's so crowded. Could go up & look around easily not stuck up there for...More

Great lookout view of English Harbour and Falmouth Harbour, but what s journey to get there. Has we known the roads in the country were not as developed we may have taken a cab. Nice lookout but quite the adventure to get there.

Bit of a trip to get here but the views are beautiful. Good to visit Sunday afternoon/evening as there is music and food although it can be quite expensive. Good for a quick trip if you have half an hour to spare

On our short trip to Shirley Heights we had a chance to sit there though we had only a couple of beers and a snack. Was good and not too expensive.
